Mascarpone cream with amaretto

mascarpone cream with amaretto and chocolate. Today a sweet smart. Clever because you prepare in no time and will make you do, unfailingly, a great impression. Is’ a cream made from mascarpone, sugar, Marsala and egg yolks (almost the basic tiramisu), served with amaretti and chocolate shavings. If you don't like the macaroons, You can use shortbread cookies, chocolate cookies or those who prefer, provided they are also should be placed at the base of the crispy sweet because, and if they are soft will soften further and do not give the right feeling. Usually I always recommend to abound in quantities, Here I tell you to do the right amount, Why is a drug: If you have more you will eat it all anyway….

Ingredients for 4 people:

  • 250 grams mascarpone
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • a tablespoon of marsala
  • a tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • dark chocolate to chop as required
  • amaretti or other crunchy cookies as required

Put the yolks in a bowl, the vanilla and sugar and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture becomes foamy, soft and not triples in volume. Add the marsala and continue to whip until well blended into the mixture. Merge slowly, with a spatula, the mascarpone: at this point you will get a smooth cream, smooth and dense. Put it in the fridge to rest for 15.30 minutes.

To serve, coarsely crumble a little’ amaretti cookies or cookies that you have chosen, put them on the bottom of 4 cups and cover with abundant mascarpone cream. Garnish with the chopped dark chocolate. Serve immediately, accompanying the cream with the same cookies that you used at the base of the cake and Bon Appetit.

THE PAIRING: A grappa made from the grape variety Sauvignon is our suggestion for this sweet. Try a grappa produced in Trentino by the distillery Marzadro. It is appreciated for its softness and fits better with the taste of the macaroons.
